SGS will be showcasing its worldwide expertise in home and personal care products at the New York Society of Cosmetic Chemists (NYSCC) 39th Suppliers’ Day - one of the most important events on the industry calendar in North America. 


Thousands of cosmetic chemists are expected to attend this year’s event which will take place from May 15-16, 2018 at Javits Convention Center in New York City, capital of the global health, beauty and fashion industry sectors.

Experts from SGS will be on hand at Booth 681 and Andrew Cole, Technical Product Manager at SGS North America will be presenting on ‘Risk & Compliance – Simplified Approach’ on the event’s opening day.


Andrew said: “As the world’s leading provider of testing and certification services, SGS has the regulatory know-how to help cosmetics manufacturers achieve compliance.


Quality Management System (QMS) and Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) guidelines have recently migrated from a compliance-based approach to a risk-based approach. I’m keen to demonstrate to manufacturers, suppliers and distributors the affect this will have on the cosmetics industry and show how, by keeping it simple, following plans and conducting periodic reviews, compliance need not be complicated or costly.”

  • Determination of ingredients
  • Chemical testing and analysis
  • Physical characteristics
  • Microbiology testing
  • Stability
